Ural Yekaterinburg is hosting CSKA Moscow at Central Stadium in round 10 in the Russian Premier League.
Ural is having a decent season so far, and they are in 11th place with 10 points, 7 scored goals, and 9 conceded goals. Ural hasn’t won any of their last 2 Premier League games, and they are not playing well. In their last Premier League match against Akhmat Grozny on the road, Ural was the weaker team with 47% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and only 75% of the correct passes. Not only Ural lost this match 2-0, but they also conceded a red card in the 38th minute of the game. Bicflavi is the leading goalscorer for Ural with 3 goals so far this season. El Kabir has added 2 assists, while Efremov and Miskic added 1 goal each. Baklov is injured, while Strandberg is suspended because of the red card. Ural has barely escaped the relegation zone last season, and it looks like they will be close to the bottom this season as well. Ural doesn’t have the depth or the quality to get closer to the Europa League, and I see them scrapping for points this season as well.
CSKA is playing well this season, and they are in 4th place in the standings with 16 points, but CSKA already has 3 losses in the first 9 games of the season. Offensively, CSKA has been decent with 14 scored goals, while their defense has been good, but it should be better if they want to be a threat to Zenit. CSKA has conceded 8 goals in 9 games. In their latest Premier League game against Lokomotiv Moscow at home, CSKA has had 56% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 10 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and a solid 83% of the correct passes. CSKA conceded a goal in the 45th minute of the game, and in the 59th minute of the game, they conceded a red card as well. After that moment, CSKA couldn’t create a decent chance, and they ended up losing this game 0-1. Vlasic has scored 4 goals and added 2 assists for CSKA so far this season, while Kuchaev added 4 goals and 1 assist. Chalov and Oblyakov each added 2 assists. Nabakin, Akhmetov, Fuchs, and Diveev are all injured, while Bistrovic is suspended because of the red card. CSKA is only 4 points away from the top of the Premier League and Zenit St. Petersburg, but if they want to be a bigger threat, CSKA will need to start playing more consistently on both ends.
Ural has won only 1 game against CSKA in the past, and they are the weaker team here. CSKA has been the dominant team in this matchup, and I see CSKA getting back on the winning track in this game. I will take CSKA.
